Let's not see this again

Hopefully Moss and the Raiders won't be doing this to us this season since we have to see him twice. Can the D Backs step it up this season with an improved D Line?

I am sorry to say it, but when the Redskins had Chump Bailey, he couldn't handle Moss at all.

Besides, I doubt there is any CB in the league who can really handle Moss...the only person able to contain Moss is himself when he wants to take plays off. Don't knock Champ - I promise you there is no CB in this league that is able to control Moss.

I agree Steve and Welcome back you SOB! Hope Greece was fun for you and I hope you were able to find a good cheese burger. I don't think anyone can D up Moss except maybe a few CB's like Bailey, Law and a few others. Stopping Moss is a team thing and that's where a safety will have to come up big with some help defense and not lettin g anyone get behind the deepest man. I can't wait until the Broncos face the Raiders, it will for sure be a great challenge!

Whatever dude, you started the name calling. And the Redskins aren't a maryland team. If you are making a comment about my site, that is fine I guess. But I don't understand what your problem is. I made a mistake 'bout Moss and Champ, but I am not an idiot. By the way, didn't the Redskins have the #2 defense in the league last year without Champ?

You need to calm down son. The Redskins we're not no #2 defensive team last year so get your numbers in order.

Washington actually had the #3 ranked defense in the NFL last season, according to yards per game. However, that really is misleading considering they were 6-10. In fact, 3 of the top 5 defenses in the league didn't make the playoffs (#2 Buffalo, #3 Washington and #5 Tampa Bay).

Here's what you need to consider before knocking Champ and saying the Redskins are better off without him. Washington had the #30 ranked offense in the NFL, which means they just couldn't move the damn ball - as a matter of fact, they scored 240 points offensively, which was 2nd worst in the league in front of 231 by the Bears.

What happens when a team gets ahead of you by 2 touchdowns in the second half? Oh yeah, they run the ball 95% of the time. Which also means they probably aren't getting many first downs, which in turn makes the opposing defensive stats look good!

I hate to say it, but if you have the #3 ranked defense and you aren't making the playoffs, then your defense isn't that solid!

If you really want to point of flaws of the Skins, take a look at their QB, better yet, take a closer look and examine Portis who didn't produce as much as expected.

Sure he gained 1,300 yards, but that was on 53 more carries then he did the previous year with the Broncos (gained close to 1,600 yards that year with the Broncos). His average per gain was a whopping 3.8, which his previous two years with the Broncos was 5.5. 29 TD scored in two years with the Broncos, 5 TD scored with the Skins. 4 fumbles lost last year with the skins, total of 4 fumbles lost in 2 years with the Broncos.

Case and point brothers...

Back to Moss - You bring up interesting points Red. Law, Bailey and probably Smoot are the names that come to mind that could provide good D coverage on Moss. However, I still contend that no CB in the league can actually shut him down. The Raiders are going to be stuck with a couple of issues.

1) Moss and Porter are both deep threats, they can stretch the field vertically. One of them is going to have to become a possesion receiver, taking short routes. Raiders won't be successful playing long ball all game.

2) Collins is their best bet at QB, he has good arm strength and throws a nice ball. His problem is he had better be more accurate. Last season, he over threw the receiver on multiple occasions.

3) They need a running game. Raiders won't go anywhere if they aren't a balanced team.

Finally

4) I won't say that they have overhauled their defense, but they did make solid changes to a poor defense. How well they can play together is going to be another story. Defensively, if they can be in the top 10-15 in the league, the Raiders will probably have a successful year.

Oh yeah, and Chris, the Redskins are indeed a Maryland team. Their stadium is located in Landover, MD - short driving distance from DC of course, but still technically a Maryland team!
